Pros Fully functioning Android 2.3 with no need to root. GPS, Bluetooth, Android Market and twin cameras at under $250 for 16GB puts it at the top of the list IMO in that price range.
Cons Single core processor, no G3 and some touch-screen problems.
Summary I wanted a 7 inch color tablet after seeing the keyboard Eink Kindle reader my wife got a few months ago. I wanted to be able to have full Android functionality including access to the Android Market without having to root the tablet. I also limited the price I was willing to pay up to $250 for an Android color tablet. I looked at every tablet in the price range including Pandigital, Kobo, Fire and Nook and then I saw the A1. At $200 from Lenovo I couldn't resist and have had the tablet for 3 days. I am very pleased with every aspect including the performance from the 1GH A8 processor. It is not an iPad but it is exactly what I wanted and would recommend it to any geek like me. The memory configuration of the A1 breaks the 16GB into three partitions. There is 2GB for the Android operating system, 2GB for program storage and 12GB for the internal SD drive. The external Micro SD card provides a fourth storage device which can be preloaded with media and document files or loaded over the Micro USB. The micro USB when connected to a computer provides access to both SD drives which show up as two separate devices on the computer.
Pros All the pre installed apps, rear and front facing camera.
Cons No USB port for a thumb drive which is not a big deal.
Summary Great, product so far, I love the price. I love the size. I would recommend this porduct to others.
Pros Price and all the android options make it a winner.
Cons Screen is a bit hard to see from angles.
Summary Living in Peru (South America), this is a great option for the money. All technology is more expensive here (sometimes double the price in the USA), so having this option for $227 is a good deal.
Pros A very nice tablet, nice feel, sleek look and feel.
It has gps positioning that seems to work nicely with several of the free offline navigation tools available at GooglePlay. (The user downloads the maps to the tablet).
Cons I's like an HDMI port for easy compatibility with most flat screen TV's, especially when traveling.
Compass, magnetoscope, gyroscope & proximeter sensors would be nice.
I would like the ability to hook a lanyard onto the chassis of the tablet.
Summary Worth buying if you don't also want HDMI output features. Personally, I want both GPS positioning and HDMI output.
Pros -the design is attractive
-very durable-has a shock absorbing back
-Android Market( reason why I bought this over the Nook and Kindle Fire)
-fully customizable . Can change the look with another launcher
-doesn't feel cheap
Cons -no hdmi ports
-dated android system is meant for mobile phones
-screen only has one viewing angle
-since i purchased in January 2012, better options came out with dual core and ice cream for only 50 dollars more and some less than the 195 i paid for
Summary This is a very good tablet just the operating system holds it back. I had it since January and it has been a solid purchase. The cameras aren't great but useful when you need them. the biggest complaint is that it feels like a bigger phone more than a true tablet experience. I love the nook and kindle reading apps as well as the browsing experience. I plan to use it for 3 to 4 more months and get lenovo upgraded version or the asus prime for the ice cream experience.
